Monsanto wins suspension of Brazil injunction

A Brazilian court has granted Monsanto suspension of the injunction against its collecting royalties for the replanting of its genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready soybeans. The farmer associations, Passo Fundo, Sertao and Santiago, gained the injunction by a magistrate’s court in Porto Alegre last month ( Agrow No 566, p 4). The first judgement ordered that payments be made into a “deposit in court”, later set at 1% of the value of the seed, according to Monsanto. A judge at the 9th Chamber of the Civil Tribunal in Rio Grande do Sul suspended the ruling following an appeal from Monsanto, allowing it to continue its payment system for farmers saving GM seed, the company says.
